Taco night is always a favorite of ours. Delicious!
Corkage fee is ridiculous, but food is excellent and the menu is quite versatile.
The food was excellent and just enough to satisfy the pallet. We even took our 5 year old daughter with us. She was pleased with her chicken strips and fries.
Everything we had was excellent, and the service was impeccable. Will be back for sure.
The veal dish was creative with varied flavors and textures. The best single restaurant dish I have eaten in KC in the 25 years I have lived hear (from NYC)..
This restaurant is great for a special occasion! Everything was so well done. It's smaller portions but I left full.
Everything was wonderful. The food was amazing! The service was attentive but not hovering. The wine pairings were perfect.
Great experience from the first page to the last.
This restaurant was by far the best
Great meal. I would recommend this to anyone that wants great food.
Everything was great ... EXCEPT ... we were jammed so close to tables on either side of us that it was simply impossible to talk without involving folks we didn’t know, and with whom we didn’t necessarily want to share details of a grandchild’s play date. Imagine a dining experience while sitting sideways on a city bus and you’ll get the picture.
Also at the top of my list for to go to restaurants. Nice little gem in PV!!
Exceptional pork shoulder. Outstanding mahi-mahi. Great wine selection. Inviting environment. What’s not to like?
Prefer to not sit with the next table, thought place could have had a bit less light.
The food is just not worth it. Salad tasted old and mushy. Mahi mahi was cold, stiff, and chewy. And the dessert cake was basically tiny crumbles somehow held up in the air. All that for $60/person? I will not be going back.
We went for restaurant week. The choices for courses were not as extensive as other venues. The food was very good. We all thought the ambience and decor were modern yet warm. Our wait staff was average. I am thinking restaurant week may not be a favorite of edit staff so I’ll cut our server a bit of slack members of our party was bought her attitude could have been warmer and I do agree. I will go back again.
The pork was overcooked and so was the fish the desert was just average
We were there during KC Restaurant Week. The food and was amazing and the service was great! We usually order a bottle of wine with dinner but the wine was obscenely overpriced. A bottle of wine we pay $85 for in another local restaurant and can buy in a liquor store for around $50 was priced at $130. The wines by the glass were equally overpriced.
Service is unbelievable! Food is outstanding! The freshness and creativity are unsurpassed in Kansas City!
Ambiance is modern and upbeat!
LOVE this amazing restaurant!
Cannot wait to return!
Dining at Story is always a treat. We went for their Sunday evening special which we really enjoyed. Save room for dessert. Both the carrot cake and German chocolate cake are unlike any I have tasted before. Superb. As always, the service is superb. We will return often.
NY Eve dinner was fabulous. Story always performs! Service was great- food was perfect!
Sunday is the perfect evening to visit Story. How many good and elegant restaurants are open on Sunday for dinner in Kansas City? Very few. We hadn't been in a year and were very surprised at both the quality of the dishes we ordered and the breath of the menu offered on a Sunday evening. My lobster tagliatelle was superb and my husband's veal dish was equally wonderful, as was the pear salad that we shared. A nice range of wines by the glass rounded out the meal. We definitely will be back . . . soon.
Delicious food in a great, eclectic atmosphere. There is enough energy here to make it a fun experience, but it’s still quiet enough to enjoy conversation with your dining partner.
Nellie is a great server, and we have had excellent service on both our visits.
Either not enough staff or staff overwhelmed
We've been to Story before and it never disappoints!! Murray Gorman is an absolute rock star!! We will definitely go back!!
Superb absolutely superb. I wish I could eat all of my meals there.
One of the best restaurants in metro Kansas City. The food is excellent. The service is great. The restaurant is beautiful. There is even amble parking. We are foodies and highly recommend this place!
My wife had the Caesar salad and the beef short ribs. I had lobster tagliatelle and striped bass. Everything was great. For dessert I had bread pudding and my wife had cheese. We both had coffee (great coffee) and port. The service was perfect. Everything was excellent.
We had dinner for my husbands birthday. It’s a nice quiet venue with great service and amazing food. We had the smoked duck empanadas and the potato dumplings with mushroom and a poached egg which was fantastic. For entries we had the swordfish and risotto, the seasonings for the swordfish were perfect.
We will definitely be back!
Always wonderful. Put neighborhood go to. Wonderful holiday evening with our kids.
Fantastic dining experience. I did the Prix Fixe menu and thoroughly enjoyed every course. The Smoked Duck Empanadas as well as the Pears cold appetizers were absolute standouts.
We had an outstanding dinner with great service. I had requested a “quiet” table and we had one where we could hear one another during our conversations. We were extremely pleased with out experience.
Although our reservation was for 7, we weren’t seated until 7:30. Since there was no space at the bar, we had to stand until we were seated.
Service, as always was excellent. Two people in our party had octopus, which was too spicy. All other food was excellent.
Cocktail prices are getting out of hand - for example, $25 for a glass of Oban is excessive. Also, wine list could have more reasonably priced selections.
Everything was outstanding form the opening free appetizer to the digestive after dinner. Service great, food and wine outstanding. Will definitely put it on my regular list.
Adam was great
I highly recommend Story. Everything is exceptional
Had dinner on taco night with the wife. Everything was delicious as always. Still can't beat the duck empanadas. Great wine selection too.
Food never disappoints!! Great options, fun environment.
